What is an Acceptable Use Policy?

The Acceptable Use Policy provides guidance on the use of Company and personal systems. It is the responsibility of every user to operate your Company’s systems in an effective, safe, ethical and lawful manner.

Why is an Acceptable Use Policy important?

A whole host of problems can arise when employees use business equipment for personal purposes or personal equipment for business purposes including, loss of productivity and security risks.

No matter what your policy is, or how much you try to control it, employees will probably use business equipment from time to time for personal purposes. As a result, most firms allow a reasonable level of use, but being consistent in creating and enforcing rules is recommended to ensure that personal use doesn’t get excessive.

This is one of the fundamental policies we recommend companies have in place from an early stage of growth.

Should I use an Acceptable Use Policy template?

Even though templates can be really helpful to create policies for your company, they are not the perfect solution. Templates are standard documents that do not reflect your company’s peculiarities. Instead of using an Acceptable Use Policy template, our recommendation is to create a custom policy completely adapted to your company’s needs. The Adoptech platform allows you to create over 70 bespoke policies in seconds.
